Firefox - Frequent, frustrating hangs and lockups on new PC

I was lucky enough to be able to buld a new PC recently, Running Windows 10 Pro on a AMD Ryzen 9 5900X rig, Asus Crosshair VII Hero motherboard and 32gb of RAM. Nvidia Gforce 1070 GPU (stand in until I can get better in the new year) Should easily be enough to run Firefox right? Apparently not.

Performance in Firefox is little better than it was on my old rig, (which was still lousy). The browser constantly freezes and locks up, not responding at all to mouse clicks between tabs or on the page. It is especially common when a website opens a file requester, such as when I'm working on my website in Wordpress, but it also happens when working with downloads or seemingly randomly too (my downloads folder is on the C drive and always accessble).

I've tried disabling all plugins (I only have 3, Privacy Badger, Facebook container and Sticky Password), I don't see what point there is in resetting the profile as I only got this computer 3 days ago.

Regards software that might conflict, I run Malwarebytes anti-malware and DisplayFusion but I've tried disabling the latter and still no joy.

I really don't want to Chrome but it's leaving me little choice here. Is there anything else I can try? Thunderbird on the same PC works perfectly.

When I click on any Zoom link in Firefox 83 on Linux, nothing happens. It seems like Firefox has no idea that the zoommtg:// protocol exists.

I've tried:

  • checking that Firefox is not installed from a snap
  • manually setting the network.protocol-handler.expose.zoommtg and network.protocol-handler.external.zoommtg preferences to true
  • running xdg-open 'zoommtg://...' in a terminal (this works fine, it's how I finished the Zoom SSO login)

I think it was update, my pc restarted. But it usually asks weird. I lost all windows and all tabs. Yet in library/history under restore windows, there is nothing! There was some json file, from which you could get tabs. I tried it last time and it didn't work. Also firefox wasn't even running at that time and previously i had all windows and tabs... Are you kidding me???

I lost like hundreds of important tabs.... Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa............

I recently installed my OS and backup the entire profile folder of Firefox. When I put the key4 and logins file in to the fresh install there was only one password in it, the remaining passwords were gone. I also noticed that a new file (logins.json.corrupt) is created along with file(logins.json). I tried to paste the files again to fix it but same issue. I think the files are corrupt. Is there any way to fix it?

Bluetooth headsets continuously toggling call mode when using microphone

In recent weeks, calls with audio have become buggy in Firefox. Whenever I engage in a call that accesses the microphone while I have a bluetooth headset connected, the headset starts continuously toggling call mode on and off for an extended duration. This can be anywhere from 10 seconds/3ish toggles to never-ending (meaning I got tired of waiting after about 3 minutes/55ish toggles).

Today I finally decided to debug further. Here are my findings:

  • Problem only exists in Firefox. I tested with Safari, Chromium, Slack and Discord, with no trouble presenting itself in any of them
  • Problem relates to all bluetooth headsets. I have tested with Sennheiser Momentum 2 Wireless and Steelseries Arctis Pro Wireless, with both exhibiting the problem in Bluetooth mode. If I have no bluetooth headsets connected, the problem does not present itself. There is also no problem if I connect the Arctis using the wireless base station (which in turn is connected to the laptop by USB) instead of bluetooth. Using the base station, call and non-call are exposed to my mac as different/simultaneous channels — this may have something to do with it.
  • Problem persists with hardware acceleration toggled off
  • Problem persists in safe mode
  • Problem persists in private mode
  • Problem persists both on Whereby.com and Discord.com. On Whereby, it also interferes with the camera. This leads me to believe it might have something to do with WebRTC, as I think both websites use it.
  • Problem persists after reinstalling Firefox
  • On a possibly related note: if I end the voice chat session after it has stabilised, call mode toggles off slowly and always sends a "start playing media" signal to my Mac, even if it didn't pause anything when toggling call mode on.

In sum, this leads me to believe there is some sort of bug in Firefox causing this, but the lack of other topics on here with the same problem makes me skeptical. I am open to any suggestions with regards to further testing I can do. This is obviously very annoying, and I would like to have bluetooth calls working again.

I wish to slim down the UI of firefox to how I used to have it where the Navbar was disabled (yes the one you type URLs into), this used to be possible in an older build of Firefox but it doesn't seem to be the case anymore, Mozilla also released an addon to appease those who liked the feature when they removed it however they have since removed this addon.

I simply don't need the navigation bar and would like it to be removed for some more minimal interface. What's the best way I could achieve this?

All the best, F.Homewood

I am migrating my wordpress based website to a new computer with a LEMP stack on Ubunto 20.04. I wish to access and test the website using the firefox browser offline. I have modified my local dns (/etc/hosts) file to include my site's url but firefox can't find it. Firefox manages to find the nginx greeting and it finds phpmyadmin which is used to manage my database, but it can't locate the wordpress web pages.

One might think I had a problem with my nginx server blocks, but that's not the case because google chrome finds the web pages with no problem.

FIrefox appears to reach out to the internet dns by default and ignore the localhost dns settings. So how do I change Firefox's default settings so that it can access websites on the same computer like Google Chrome does?
